    Hey everyone,

    I have an iMac 27 A1419 Late 2012 i5 2.9 GHZ Model computer. I hit my computer to wall and it broken my lcd corner(black area). Fortunately LCD is fine, only the top black area is broken. Whatever, I want to cover this black area with something. I tried to cover with car window filter its better now.

    Are there any lcd protector or filter to cover my broke black area ? I don't want to see broke area.

    I want to ask another question. I saw some 27 5K Retina IPS LCD sellers on ebay. I wondered and asked them "Is 5K IPS LCD compatible with my iMac Late 2012 A1419. They said YES

    If I buy 5K IPS LCD and replacement with my screen. Is it work with Retina ?

    Thank you !

    Your best option is to replace the glass, which only costs about $70 on eBay. 5K panel is unfortunately not compatible with your iMac.

    His/her iMac is a slim model, so the glass is fused to the display. The glass cannot be replaced separately.

    That part is correct.
